Situated on a beautiful, quiet, tree-lined block in the heart of the Upper West, this charming 1-bedroom brownstone apartment has been lovingly cared for by the same owner for almost 40 years and is ready to be passed along to someone looking to start their own new chapter of NYC brownstone-living. This sweet home is just one flight up and has charming prewar details such as a wall of exposed brick with a decorative fireplace, hardwood flooring, and soaring (over 12 feet) ceilings. Both the living room and bedroom have oversized windows looking north over the quaint backyard gardens and the large open kitchen features new stainless steel appliances. Plus, the high ceiling height allows for a new owner to create a stand-up loft (which most units in this brownstone coop have already done) to maximize space and create a whole new lofted space. There are many possibilities to transform this charming space into your very own jewel box in the heart of the Upper West. Also note, there is plenty of storage and closet space, thru-wall air conditioning, and very low monthlies. Built in 1900 and converted to cooperative apartments in 1982, "The Brownstones" are a well-managed, 4- building co-op. Subletting, Co-Purchasing and Pied-a-terres are permitted with board approval. Pets are welcome. Laundry room and bike storage are in the basement. The location, West 70th and Columbus, has convenient access to all major transportation (subway/bus) just around the corner. One block from Central Park and surrounded by all the shops, bakeries, restaurants and renowned cultural centers of the Upper West (Lincoln Center, Metropolitan Opera, NYC Ballet). This location cannot be beat.
